Holandski investicioni fond HTP preuzeo firmu "Reum" u Svilajncu
Holandski investicioni fond HTP preuzeo je većinski paket kompanije "Reum GmbH" iz nemačke pokrajine Baden Virtenberg. Nemačka kompanija je, inače, u Svilajncu izgradila fabriku za proizvodnju autodelova.
Zamenik predsednika opštine Predrag Milanović kaže da "o tome imaju zvaničnu informaciju, ali i potvrdu Agencije za strana ulaganja i promociju izvoza (SIEPA) i sledeći je korak da predstavnici HTP-a dođu u Srbiju i sa predstavnicima vlade, Ministarstva ekonomije i opštinom dogovore novu strategiju".
Očekujemo da počne da radi Fabrika za proizvodnju autodelova za automobile visoke klase koju je "Reum "izgradio u Svilajncu, dodao je on i napomenuo da su Holanđaani u "Reum" ušli "kroz jednu nemačku firmu koja se bavi proizvodnjom autodelova, pošto je "Reum" zapao u finansijske probleme".
Ugovor o izgradnju Fabrike u Svilajncu sa kompanijom "Reum" je potpisan 6. avgusta 2008. godine, a kamen temeljac su 21. oktobra položili ministar ekonomije i potpredsednik vlade Mlađan Dinkić i predsednik kompanije "Reum" Rolf Riter.
Tako je simbolično označen početak izgradnje fabrike na površini od 9.000 m2, a trebalo je da fabrika počne da radi već u martu 2009. godine.
Uporedo sa izgradnjom fabrike, u koju je investirano 2,5 mil EUR, oko 200 radnika iz Svilajnca je prošlo obuku u fabrikama kompanije "Reum".
Greenhouse Investments invests EUR 100 million in corporate bonds market and acquisition of bank in
The British investment fund Greenhouse Investments plans to take over a bank in Serbia soon. This has been confirmed for eKapija by Michael O' Leary Collins, the Director General of that company.
That investment fund will invest EUR 100 million in businesses in Serbia and it also plans to start purchasing corporate bonds from domestic companies once it completes the acquisition of a bank.
Greenhouse is already registered in Serbia and the first investments are expected to be made within next two months.
Owing to complicated procedures, only three domestic companies have issued corporate bonds to date.
Mr. O' Leary Collins says that the future set of amendments and supplements to the Law on takeover of stock companies will facilitate the process of issuing bonds and that Greenhouses sees that as an investment opportunity.
- We already have a regional experience. We have invested about EUR 200 million in residential development projects in Romania, while our operations in Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina will start at the same time - Mr. O' Leary Collins points out.

According to the company's statement, that represents the beginning of the operations of Novi Sad Oil Refinery in a new field, after it started production of motor oils under Nisotek brand in 2010.
NIS Director General Kiril Kravcenko said that excessive supply in the market and economic efficiency had demanded from NIS to concentrate the production of motor fuels at the refinery in Panevo, while the change of production had also kept Novi Sad Oil Refinery in business.
- In accordance with the plan, maximum 100,000 tons of raffinates will be produced ever year, 97% of which is intended for export, primarily to the market of Asia, while the remaining 3% will be offered to the domestic market - said Kravcenko.
The statement reads that the first phase of elaboration of the project of naphthenic base oil production at Novi Sad Oil Refinery is underway, meaning that a foreign strategic partner is necessary.
